Warren Comments on Medicare Site-Neutral Payment Policy Ruling

26 September 2019 Revcycle Intelligence News

Partner Adria Warren was quoted in a Revcycle Intelligence article, “Winners, Losers of the Medicare Site-Neutral Payment Policy Ruling,” about a federal court ruling overturning Medicare’s site-neutral payment policy.

Warren said she wasn’t surprised by the ruling, in part because it came from the same court that ruled earlier this year that CMS overstepped its statutory authority to reduce Medicare reimbursement to hospitals receiving outpatient drug discounts through the 340B Drug Pricing Program, a federal initiative that  helps safety-net providers stretch federal resources as far as possible.

With health care expenditures continuing to grow, Warren added that she would not be shocked if CMS continues to try to implement site-neutral payments or other payment reforms. “We’re going to be dancing this dance for awhile,” she said.
